Smart previews.

I'm familiar with Smart Previews, but I don't think that's a solution to my problem. I'm not looking to edit while disconnected from the external drive, I'm looking to continue the edits (that I've been doing for the past 6 months on my girlfriend's computer) on my own computer.

When I plug in the hard drive and open LR it's more or less prompting me to import all my files, which I don't want to do. When I plug in the external drive to my girlfriend's computer I get seamless access to all of my photos and previous edits.

I want that access on my own computer.

I agree, smart previews are not a solution to this problem.
